Looks like it caps at $300.
still a Lg c8 65" at 3099 is a good deal. even if it is refurbished.
b/c/8/9 very little diff right...
LG OLED65B8STB $2396, LG OLED55B8STB $1596
Deal is not on, apparently anymore online.. Maybe instore?
Bugger, used to be quite a bit higher previously.
Yeah pretty sure in the past it was the full 20%, so $600 off $3000.
Yeah I think that was about my discount when I purchased the 65" and a bit less of a discount for the 55" I grabbed. Maybe too big of a discount in the past? : p
Well they sell them frequently for these prices.. This just confirms for me OLED at RRP is rip off prices. Even before they were the old model. The Discount is enough to buy a cheap 65" LED TV...
Samsung is apparently going to make OLED (but brighter). 8k is apparently not selling that well, I actually don't expect it to really take off. Zero content, very marginal improvement in image quality..
Samsung already produces over 300 million OLED screens a year. It is purely a business case decision.
Samsung had also produced a 55" OLED TV that supported 3D and multiview.
They were actually the first to release a large screen size RGB OLED, but yield rates were poor and it was abandoned. The only proper RGB OLED panels are the Sony Professional monitors which are very expensive per square inch.
LG released the WOLED panel, which as you know other makers are buying.
Samsung is working on and going to release μLED or MicroLED... looks pretty cool tbh.
Not to mention premium price tag also. Just about absolutely pointless buying an 8K tv now.
IMO 8K is deader than 3D technology. There are 3D titles and media and even streaming and games. There is no 8k media, there is no interest in 8k media/streaming. I expect it to die off within 12 months.
OLED is clearly what the market wants, I expect samsung to move forward its planned OLED TV's. It has too, other wise its out of the TV business. The TV business sells bluray, sells speakers, sells other tech.
A big prediction... I'll back the other horse and we'll see what happens.
Hisense is around 1.2k 55 inch.. Good deal Bing lee ebay
Less than 18,000 8k TV's were sold world wide in 2018. Well down on the predicted 100,000. Of course they are predicting to sell a million in 2019. But in reality its likely <40,000.
8K may exist for very large TV's 85" or greater (simply because its cheaper to make them at that size), or professional projectors, medical monitors, movie industry monitors etc but I don't see it ever hitting mass volume.
Maybe I am miss reading the market, and everyone desperately wants 8k TV's, and in every size. Maybe no body likes OLED.
Like 5 years on we still don’t have an abundance of 4K media. I was a sceptic originally about 1080P upscaling but honestly my Panasonic 55” OLED looks fantastic even with DVD rips. Maybe im just getting old haha
I think 8K will be a thing but only on niche 80” + displays where the PPI drops drastically which is even worse than 4K and will likely seen little adoption.
Sure, but media availability and what screens are produced and sold to the masses are two different things. Most panels are now 4K... eventually most panels will be 8K regardless of content availability.
why would anyone want to pay like 10k for a 65 inch tv?
People were paying $40k for 40" Plasmas back in the early 2000's...
I highly doubt many people were spending 40k on a tv...
You'd be surprised. I was setting up several a week, and $50k for a 50". Nice profit margin on them back then, too...
Picture was abysmal.
